Experienced Surgical Care
We offer a range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our Fremont clinic, with stringent surgical protocols.
During each animal surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and monitor your pet continuously using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management is also provided.
Following surgery, post-operative monitoring and pain management become first priorities. Your vet will also provide detailed instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Veterinary Surgery
We are committed to keeping you fully informed about why a surgical procedure is being recommended. We will also explain any post-operative care your pet will require at home. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.
At Newark Pet Clinic, we perform emergency and medical surgeries to help treat conditions and diseases in pets, or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our vets in Fremont routinely perform these elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
Pets suffering from ear, nose and throat disorders will need soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, hepatic, urogenital, skin and oncological disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When a cat or dog is spayed or neutered, they are surgically sterilized to prevent disease. This also provides them with an extended life expectancy.
During Caesarean sections, kittens or puppies are surgically removed from their mother's uterus.
Typically, C-sections are performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
- Mass Removal
Cats and dogs can develop masses associated with the skin. Masses can also grow inside a body cavity and can be serious or life-threatening.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
- Foreign Body
Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested or can get stuck inside a cat's or dog's body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
In some cases, specialized skills or equipment are needed to perform pet surgery. If that is the case for your animal, your vet will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon near Fremont and work closely with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your dog or cat receives the very best care.
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.
It's imperative that these wounds be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.
- Surgical Insemination
We perform Surgical Artificial Insemination (SAI) while your pet is under general anesthetic. The procedure takes approximately 30 - 45 minutes to complete.
Surgical insemination is the best option for females with long-standing fertility problems as well as in cases where semen quality is impaired.
Veterinary Surgery Process
We understand that you may feel frightened at the prospect of bringing your pet in for surgery. Please rest assured that surgery is only recommended when it is in your furry companion's best interests.
We will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery, and that you are comfortable making the choice to move ahead.
If your pet needs advanced care, our vets can refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Fremont, and work closely with your vet surgeon to make sure your pet gets the best possible care.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. The specifics of the procedure will be confirmed and the vet will complete a physical exam of the patient, and ensure blood tests have been done. They will be reviewed by the vet to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. We perform surgeries in a dedicated surgical suite, which is kept completely sterile to prevent cross-contamination and infection.
Surgical attire. Our staff wear masks and disposable caps at all times when they are in our surgical suite. Anyone involved in the procedure itself will also wear single-use gloves and sterile gowns.
Sterile packs and equipment. Our surgical instruments and equipment are carefully cleaned, sterilized and wrapped before every veterinary surgery.
